Shop Princeville First

When you shop Princeville, you are also investing in the future of the community. To get the best value out of your dollar, invest your money here to help promote the continued growth of Princeville. Studies show that for every dollar spent locally, twice as much is reinvested back into the community by the business owners. By shopping locally you are also generating sales tax revenue, boosting local employment, and paving the way for new business to open in Princeville.

Why make the drive into Peoria when you have almost all you need here? Princeville has many diverse services, like chiropractic care, car repair, lawyer consulting, insurance, and even a car wash. And all of your basic needs-banking, groceries, fuel, food-can be found in town, also.

Save the gas consumption and help Princeville's continued growth by shopping locally.
